Laue Cameras
May 2008
Photonic Science Ltd.Request Info
ROBERTSBRIDGE, England, May 5, 2008 -- Photonic Science Ltd. said its new generation of detectors -- Laue microdiffraction and backscattered cameras -- are designed for laboratories and synchrotrons wanting to carry out systematic bulk crystal orientation and microcrystal characterization.

The cameras allow unique backscattered geometry with collection time varying from near real time to a few minutes, depending on source, detector and crystal combination. Automated sample rotation, combined with shutterless acquisition, brings simpler and more flexible data collection routines, the company said.

The x-ray Laue camera works with a 2-µm pink beam size at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, Photonic Science said.

The acquisition software delivers ready-to-be-indexed digital images. Useful online tools such as angle, intensity and profile measurements are available from either a laptop or desktop computer. Indexation of Laue patterns can be performed offline using dedicated software packages.

Existing Laue setup can be upgraded with turnkey solution including beam delivery to detector installation. Very high resolution detectors allowing strain analysis studies are available on demand.

Its new Laue camera dubbed Cyclops is a neutron CCD detector, Photonic Science said, with applications including: real-time magnetic/structure transitions, photo-induced transitions, stroboscopic crystallography, modulated and incommensurate phases, very small single crystals, and high pressure physics.

Key features include:
  • An octogonal array of neutron scintillators
  • X16 image-intensified cooled CCD cameras
  • 20 megapixels, 160 x 160 microresolution
  • 70 percent of 4p with subsecond read-out
  • Focusing supermirror thermal guide
  • Real-time reciprocal space surveys
Photonic Science said it will be exhibiting the cameras at the Denver X-ray Conference, Aug. 4-8, 2008.
